Kelly Dwyer didn't want any of this

me and Tyson and Lee challenged him to a debate 2 years ago, he just insulted us and pulled the im-a-writer-from-yahoo-so-my-argument-is-not-flawed card. He's just pathetic.

We just finished up a chat through email. Interesting how it went. Basically, any kind of debate involving the things he says was avoided...big time, as in, completely ignored...but he read every single word I wrote (which was about 10 paragraphs), and he replied back, speaking solely about how it took him 15 years to get where he's at with Yahoo, that I should write on my own, that message boards are for debates rather than picking up full-time gigs, etc.
I'm pretty sure he understood exactly what I mean when I say a lot of journalists write for reactions, rather than to spread knowledge...but, again, I got nothing out of him.
Alex Kennedy used to write for me, and when he found his way into a paying job, I noticed he started to say things for a reaction. He wasn't doing it as frequently as Dwyer, but it's still there...and maybe it's necessary. My biggest problem was that, simply put, I felt Dwyer does it far too often. He knows the traffic he can get if he criticizes Kobe, from the biggest fanbase in the league.
That's really where I stand with all of this.

Be the underground rapper that never started making booty songs when he went mainstream.
You can be a different type of analyst, one that doesn't BS could gather a lot of respect as opposed to those that "mainstream" it by directing traffic and being a "no homer" is what was most respected about Hearn. He is the example of bravery and honesty that announcers nor many journalists know much about nowadays and is a near exinct breed.
Make them remember! Im sure there's a lot of gathering fans that wish for it.

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."
